Elephant Lake Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in St Lucia
Reviewed 28 December 2009

We stayed one night here. It was not bad, the front staff seemed a bit confused when I asked if there was room service. she had no idea, that was strange. The restaurant manager tricked me, when I walked in to eat. He offered me the buffet only, not giving me the a la cart menu. I was so tired I didn't think to ask. The buffet was 155 rand, and not worth it. Make sure you ask for a menu and hten order the shrimp for 95 rand. I was told they were good.
the rooms were fine, nothing to write home about, small, clean with all the basic things you'll need.

Reviewed 25 October 2009

I have stayed at Elephant Lake Hotel several times since 2004 and have felt like I was coming home. The staff is friendly and more than willing to make sure each stay is pleasant. The food is excellent and one is made to feel as if they are a part of the family.

My trips to St. Lucia have been for both business and pleasure.

The next time I visit South Africa St. Lucia is on my list for rest and relaxation
